Welcome to St. Mary's Nativity Catholic Church where ALL are welcome!


St. Mary's Nativity Catholic Church supports and encourages spiritual growth through education, service, liturgy, worship and celebration of the Sacraments.  As members, we strive to deepen our relationship with God and work towards our ultimate goal - eternal life with the Lord.



History of St. Mary's Nativity Church                                                                        







Knights of Columbus Council #4761 will have a Lenten Seafood Dinner every Friday during Lent.  Eat in or carry out!  We will be serving from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s Nativity Community Center.  Soda, bottled water, and desserts are available. The Dinners are $8.00 a plate.


Why We Worship is a new 6-week video-based study on the Mass.  Each week’s video will contain a 45-minute presentation by Dr. Brant Pitre followed by a short presentation by Fr. Mark Toups.   

 Each week’s study webpage will include a video, study notes, links for further study, and an audio file (for those wanting to listen to audio only). 

Each of the six videos are approximately 60 minutes long.  We will sessions in the church office on the following dates:

March 22 - Week 6: The Biblical Roots of the Mass, Part 2


In an effort to beautify the grounds in front St. Mary's Church Parish Office, we have begun a bricked area which can be used as a prayer place.  Remember your loved ones in a special way by purchasing a memorial brick(s) to complete this area.  By purchasing a brick you are not only creating an area for prayer and remembering your loved ones but also helping St. Mary to reduce the financial debt.  You can purchase your memorial brick through the Online Giving tab or call the Church Parish Office for more information.





 St. Joseph Altar

St. Mary’s will have a St. Joseph’s Altar in the Community Center on Sunday, March 18 and Monday, March 19. Viewing will begin at 8:00 a.m., and the altar will remain open for viewing until 3:00 p.m. both days.


We are looking for Auction Items for the Steak Dinner on April 14, 2018.  If you or someone you know would be interested in donating any items, please bring them to the  Parish Office.  If you cannot get them to us just call the Parish Office (985-537-3204) and we can make arrangements to pick them up.  Deadline for donations is Friday, April 6, 2018.



Continuing with the descriptions of our stained glass windows and moving clockwise from the altar:


Window #11 - GOD THE FATHER



Left Side:

Triangle with Eye - refers to the all-seeing eye of God, "the eyes of the Lord are upon those who fear him, upon those who hope for his kindness." Psalm: 33:18

Sunburst with Circle and  -  The Hebrew people thought the name of God too sacred to pronounce, so various substitutes were devised.  Sometimes, two Hebrew yods  in a circle of rays of glory are used.


Right Side:

Hand of God Descending - right hand of God descending was the only symbol of God for the first eight or nine hundred years.  "Your right hand,  O Lord, magnificent in power your right hand, O Lord, has shattered the enemy."  Exodus 15:6

Six Pointed Star with Single  -  Creator's Star, the six points refer to the six days of Creation, the single  symbolizes God.
